Hi all, a bit about myself. Former baker and now a programmer in the making hailing from Melbourne, Victoria. I plan on making plenty of great things on the Dbolical Network! Have a huge passion for IT & games and a big fan of all things modding and hope to talk to both readers and developers on here about how we can make this site the best it possibly can be. If you have any suggestions or thoughts feel free to PM me or shoot me an e-mail.

Hello World

Hi everyone!

My account has admittedly not been very visually active in recent times so a blog post is a good start to turn that around. So here's a little summarized version about me and my history:

I have recently come on board as an apprentice web developer (with uni filling my brains on the side) to help out with development and general day-to-day tasks around the Dbolical network. Computer games & game development are a great passion of mine and modding is something I have covered extensively in the past (if anyone here remembers Amped Mods/Amped DX). Back with Amped I recall covering huge releases for Battlefield 1942's monster TC like Desert Combat & Eve of Destruction as well as interviewing developers & industry figures from Dystopia's developers to Valve's Doug Lombardi. I tried as well...


Patrick: Two words, one number. Half-Life 3?
Doug Lombardi: Oh boy.

So life took a bit of a turn after things at Amped went belly up and I found myself doing something completely different for 40 hours a week - Baking. Hell of a lifestyle change at the time but minus the unsociable hours and few other cons I enjoyed it and stuck to it for the next 7 and a half years. I made the decision in September last year to go back to school and enrolled in an undergraduate programming degree here in Melbourne which I am enjoying tremendously from the comfort of my computer chair at home (seriously, online study is the best) and will be doing until late 2017.

So recently got the opportunity to come on-board to help out intense! with some behind the scene development. I feel incredibly humbled to be coming back to my I.T and gaming roots and I hope that I will be able to do some great things across the Dbolical sites to make your experience here as awesome as it possibly can be.

If you run into any problems or have any questions regarding the sites or maybe some idea's that you think would be an great addition to the site please don't hesitate to send me a PM or an e-mail.

Cheers and talk soon!
